The Global Carbomer Market size is projected to reach USD X.X billion by the end of 2028, growing at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period (2021-2028). Carbomer 980 is expected to account for 38% share in 2021 and 36% share in 2025. The personal care and cosmetics segment is expected to grow at a high rate due to increased demand from the young population. Asia Pacific region will witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to strong economic development and a large number of emerging countries such as China and India.



Carbomer is a chemical compound that can be used as an ingredient in cosmetics and personal care products. It provides thickening or suspending properties to the product it is added to, depending on its concentration. Carbomers are available in different concentrations of 0.01-0.15%. Carbomer is a synthetic anionic polymer that has properties of water-binding, thickening, and gelling. Carbomers are widely used in various industries such as personal care, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals due to their wide applications across multiple end-use segments including skincare, home care products, etc., and increasing consumer inclination towards personal care products. Carbomer has wide applications across various industries including pharmaceutical, food and beverage, building & construction industry, etc., because of its ability to form a gel-like structure in the presence of electrolytes or metal ions present in water-based systems.



On the basis of Type, the global carbomer market is segmented into Carbomer 980, Carbomer 680, and Others.



Carbomer 980:

Carbomer 980 is a crosslinked polyacrylic acid that provides increased viscosity. It has high gel strength, good film formers and can be used as a thickener in lotions, creams, and hair care products. Carbomers enhance the performance of moisturizers by preventing moisture loss from the skin surface due to reduction in water activity on the addition of a small amount of polymer successfully emulsify oil & water phases without using surfactants or other additives such as preservatives and fragrances. It offers excellent stability against salts, alkalis at high temperatures even under acidic conditions with no hydrolysis during storage for long periods of time. It enhances the feel properties when added to cosmetics which improve rheological characteristics and provide or improve slip and spreadability to the moisturizers.



Carbomer 680:

Carbomer 680 is an anionic homopolymer of acrylic acid. It has a very high viscosity and is available in powder or liquid form. Carbomer 680 works best in combination with other polymers like Pemulen TR-500, Carbopol 1382, etc. The product is mainly applied in personal care products such as shampoos, hair conditioners and anti-aging creams among others due to its thickening property and emulsifying properties respectively.



On the basis of Application, the global carbomer market is segmented into Personal Care Products including Skincare products & Haircare products; Pharmaceuticals; Homecare industry including General detergents; Food & beverages, and others.



Personal Care Products Including Skincare Products & Haircare Products:

Carbomer is widely used in Personal Care Products including Skincare products & Haircare products. It has a distinct property of thickening personal care product formulations into clear gels and giving desired viscosity to the final products with ease, keeping them stable for long periods without altering their properties or performance. Carbomers are widely used in cosmetics such as creams, lotions, hair conditioners, etc. It also moisturizes the skin by acting as a humectant.




Carbomer is used as an ingredient in Pharmaceuticals. The polymer aids to increase the viscosity of a liquid, and so pharmaceutical formulations which are water-based can be thickened by Carbomer. It also reduces the overall dosage required for each patient due to its high dispersibility and enhances safety during administration. Moreover, it has been used in various formulations of drugs such as antacids, cough syrups, and nasal decongestants.



Homecare Industry Including General Detergents:

Carbomer is used in the Homecare industry as a thickener and stabilizer. It has an effective synergy with surfactants, improving detergency properties of liquid cleaners by reducing their surface tension which makes them more efficient at taking up dirt from surfaces. In addition to this, it also reduces viscosity while maintaining stability against phase separation under high shear conditions even when diluted 40 times its concentration in water. Carbomers are particularly useful for use over a wide range of temperatures and pH because they can tolerate high temperatures, alkalinity, or acidity without losing functionality. This helps avoid changes in the formulation during storage that could result due to chemical reactions between active ingredients such as acids and bases occurring on heating/cooling cycles too often.



Food & Beverages:

Carbomer is a trading name for Carbomers and their salts. It can be used as suspending agents, viscosity enhancers, or stabilizers in food applications. Due to their excellent ability of stabilization and suspension, they are commonly employed in the beverages industry. In addition, it has also been observed that carbomer provides an improved mouthfeel during consumption due to the much better rheological properties (thickness). Hereby increasing the product’s sensory characteristics such as diffusion rate of aroma molecules through thickening fluids will add up additional value within marketability perspective.



On the basis of Region, the global carbomer market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the dominant market during the forecast period owing to rapidly growing markets such as China and India for cosmetics and personal care products coupled with the high growth rates expected from emerging economies such as Malaysia and Vietnam. Increasing demand from end-use segments such as pharmaceuticals will drive the regional market over the next eight years. Additionally, rising healthcare expenditure along with an aging population base are further driving this regional market. North America held a significant revenue share in the global carbomer market and is expected to be dominant during the forecast period.



Growth Factors For The Global Carbomer Market:

The growth of the global Carbomer market is expected to be driven by factors such as increasing demand for personal care and cosmetics, rise in awareness regarding skin-care products among consumers, increase in disposable income levels due to economic development across various regions. Furthermore, the growth of the pharmaceutical industry is expected to aid in revenue generation for the market players.
